Rarefied air … at 13,000 feet

Back from my week-long “sista” trip in Keystone, Co., where my sisters, Lisa and Ahni, and I celebrated Lisa’s 50th birthday with some marvelous hikes, white water rafting and shopping (of course!). After a couple of days of acclimating to the altitude, we took on a half-day hike starting at Loveland Pass to enjoy the vistas of the Continental Divide. Wildflowers and marmots awaited us at the top.

It was windy up there!

Love the 'do in this shot. It was windy up there!

We made it off the peak just as the storms were rolling in. Phew!
